EPCOY Update

Just a quick news and updates about our pending release of the EPCOY podcast.

We continue to work on the entire show script. This is a change from Episodic scripting that was originally envisioned. This is a pretty big change time wise, as we are writing the whole SHOW rather than just each episode. This will save time between casts, but requires significant more up front work.

During this script redevelopment, we also have revised the story, changing this from a daily day to day exploration of life in EPCOT to something a little more dramatic, a change that has really made the script writing process clearer and show much tighter.

These changes were also prompted by the desire to lessen each show from the planned 1 hour length, to 30 minutes. This is easier in production, allows for greater diversity of story, and also lets the series run longer overall, all of which is a better for the listener in terms of quality.

Part of pre production of the show, we have been working on finding music, background effects and making sound effects. This audio pre production goes a long way when the show starts rolling, but it takes some time up front. We won't lie, there is a thrill to this part of the production as well. We are picking some sounds that really bring back some memories to those who may have visited EPCOT during its formative years.

We are getting confident that the first Episode (likely a very detailed visitors guide type promo) will drop at the latest in January 2018, with pretty regular Episodes following. We hope you tune in and enjoy, because we love what we do.

Ending Radio Silence

Hi All, Sorry its been so long since a post, or a new episode. Here at Boldcasting, we have been looking for even more exciting talent to send your way. After all, Boldcasting is a platform for the strange and different, not just people in front of microphones talking. To that end, its looking more and more like we have managed to land the exclusive talent of Rick Certain! As many of you know, Rick was a morning disc jockey of legend at WPAZ in Appleton for years. His morning shows are still traded by lovers of strange and unique audio performances the world over. We caught up with Rick and have negotiated a deal that is looking like we will be the exclusive provider of these shows on our podcast. We look forward to working with Rick, and the rest of his morning crew in the coming days!

Ricks Corner - Radio Wine Interview Pt. 1

We are proud to offer this exclusive interview with Rick Certain, our newest talent to sign on with our Podcasting network. We sat down with Rick to get a feel for his days in radio, and why his shows are still considered some of the oddest morning radio to ever be made, and where he is planning to go in the digital age.

We caught up to Rick in his Study on a Saturday Afternoon. Rick was dressed business casual and positioned himself in front of just a few of his Radio Awards.

Podcast Market Research

Sorry we have been a bit missing in action for this last week. If you are going through some commercials withdraw, worry not, more to be posted soon, and we really appreciate your listening.

We haven't wasted this week. Progressing our podcast to being the best podcast it can be, means taking time away to understand what listeners are looking for in a Podcast. Its fun to create satire commercials, and in many ways, very easy since "Marketing" is basically a inside joke. But we want to offer more than just two minute giggles every day.

As such, we have been LISTENING to a lot of other podcasts. In sales training, I frequently heard that there were "lots of books on sales" but "no books on listening." Why not apply the same thing to our endeavor?

So here are two shows that listeners of our Commercials Podcast will find delightful:
